Beretta's New 92X

Eric Poole, Editor of Guns & Ammo magazine, talks with Erik Stern of Beretta about the new Beretta 92X at the 2019 NRA Annual Meetings. Poole mentions the M9 he used to carry during his time as a marine, and Stern explains to us how different the 92X is.

The 92X is an all steel model designed almost entirely for competition shooting. The 92X has a Brigadier slide, which is wider and heavier than the M9 slide, featuring a fiberoptic dovetail front sight and forward cocking serrations. The rear sight has fully adjustable windage and elevation adjustments to perfectly zero your gun for maximum accuracy potential.

Inside the frame there are two adjustment screws to regulate the pre-travel and over travel of the trigger and adjust it to suit your needs. Not only is the trigger adjustable, but it is one of the shortest reset triggers on any TDA gun on the market, significantly improving your split times.

The 92X sports a Vertec frame with checkered front and backstraps, both improving function and style. The proprietary nickel of the Nistan finish allows the user to easily wipe away any carbon residue, and requires less need for lubrication than other finishes. The safety system features an ambidextrous manual safety lever on both sides.


Controlling muzzle rise on this handgun requires almost no effort. Between the weight and handling characteristics, this gun is going to shoot straight and accurately.
